The Mediator – #MyFitWit
The RunnersRagnar Relay with 10 other friends, Maggie jumped at the opportunity. And since then, Maggie has now completed 3 total Ragnar Races and has also put three half marathons under her belt. You can see from the picture, (Maggie is seated at the bottom of the picture) that she is one of a whole group of FitWitters who have banded together to run Ragnar Races. She wasn’t always a runner. When Maggie first started FitWit, the thought of running even three miles seemed impossible. Maggie believes that the encouragement she receives from her FitWit community has been one of the keys to her success as an endurance runner. “It’s strong, it’s empowering, it makes you feel really good to have this group of people around you who encourage you and who also tell you that you can do these things that maybe you don’t believe that you can do.” Today, Maggie not only runs, but she helps organize midweek runs out of the FitWit gym with fellow FitWitters. If you’re looking for a group who will help empower you to reach goals that seem impossible, we’d love to meet you and help you get to know our community. Contact us here.
Since 2006, our personalized group-training program has transformed thousands of lives (see a sampling of stories below). We guarantee you’ll look and feel better after 12 weeks of working with us or we’ll refund your entire investment in our training program.
The body change is pretty obvious (see picture), but the fitness gains are great too. After only 12 weeks, I’m doing things I never thought I would do like toe push-ups, assisted pull-ups, 40 lb KB swings…..who would have imagined?!
The mental changes, too, have been remarkable. Doing FitWit makes me love my body. Think about it, you are honoring your body every time you show up to camp and your body is honoring you by doing the work. I’ve recognized that to realize change in myself I have to start with LOVE. You know, it’s all you need.
Body Fat: From 24% down to 19%
Weight: Dropped 15 lbs., gained muscle (clearly!)
Workouts: Improved to a sub 8-min mile, almost 6 min. plank AND was confident enough to do the pushups-for-a-cause in a Speedo!
Sometimes it’s hard to believe how far I’ve come. When I first joined FitWit I couldn’t really do a push-up or even a sit-up. FitWit has really changed my life. Never in a million years would I have dared to sign up for a marathon or believed I would enjoy getting up early and working out. The workouts are challenging with a variety from day to day that keeps it fun. I love seeing all my fellow FitWit campers no matter how sweat and dirty we get. I love my trainers – they push me hard when I need it and help with modifications when I need them. Everyone is supportive and the atmosphere is friendly.
FitWit works for me because of the community of supportive friends that I can’t wait to see at each workout. My fellow campers and trainers keep me accountable. I also like that my membership supports the FitWit Foundation which provides fitness, nutritional information, and tutoring to deserving Atlanta school kids. Having never been an athletic person now at 45, I am stronger and in better shape than I have ever been.
I really thought I was happy until a personal situation forced me to take inventory of myself, my role as a mother, and a wife. I painfully realized that I was a mess. Instead of living, I only existed. Like so many other women, I was taking care of everybody except for me. Even worse, I convinced myself that I was happy being a plus size girl. Don’t get me wrong, you can be beautiful at any size, but in reality, it’s just not healthy to be !@#$%^&* near twice your size. (Excuse my French.)
The first few weeks of camp were rough and I felt like a complete failure. I wasn’t skinny! I remember Josh saying, “Dee, this ain’t that kind of program baby. You gotta work for it.” So I got over my unrealistic expectations (to lose 30lbs. in 3 days), showed up for camp every day, and attended nutrition counseling with Jenn. Within weeks, I started seeing tremendous results.
With the support of the trainers and the 7am Grant Park crew, I have now lost over 60lbs. Did I reach my goal? Not yet, but I am happy, looking fly, and sexier than ever. FitWit has become a way of life for me and I am loving it!
I lost 27lbs, dropped 4 clothing sizes and most of all I feel great!
My husband says he is so proud of me and calls me “skinny”!
I am a FitWitter for life, a team player and FitWit is my Team!
I’m more than glad that FitWit is the New Year’s resolution that I stuck with, In January of 2012. I began a challenging and rewarding group experience. Being resolute about getting-up extra early and ignoring my lungs’ and muscles’ protests, I inched and lunged my way into a healthier, stronger place. , I can concretely see the real progress I’ve made through eating right and regular adherence to the FitWit regimen! It’s all worth it!
FitWit helped save my life
Upon realizing it was my anniversary of sorts, I revisited my pictures from two years ago last night and saw for myself the changes… It is staggering. I don’t even recognize the ‘before’ person… physically, mentally, in all aspects! Never going back to that! Forward momentum only! FitWit helped me save my life… and that’s not a dramatic statement!
Pictures are one thing, but the way I feel now, strong, and healthy, not ashamed, no need to hide behind my 7 year old. (I’ve even got my thyroid numbers regulated!)
The picture says it all!
